Bulgaria: Suicide Bomber behind Trolleybus Deadly Blast in Volgograd - Officials Video footage from the scene Monday showed the twisted shell of the blue trolleybus, with debris spread around it.

A suicide bomber has set off the deadly trolleybus explosion, which killed at least 10, in the Russian city of Volgograd on Monday morning, officials say.

The blast comes a day after 17 people died in a suicide bombing at the central station in the city.

Security has been tightened at railway stations and airports across Russia.

Moscow is concerned militant groups could be ramping up violence in the run-up to the 2014 winter Olympic Games in the city of Sochi.

The Olympic venue is close to Russia's volatile north Caucasus region.

Volgograd lies about 900km (560 miles) south of Moscow, 650km north of the North Caucasus and 700km north-east of Sochi.

Not "Suicide Bomber", such bombers are just pawns, but Islam, Vahhabi Islam is behind those blasts in different Russian cities. Questions to Russian authorities:
- hundreds, if not thousands, Wahhabi cells throughout Russia, is it an "unexpected news"?
- burning Orthodox churches (the last ones in Tatarstan), why so cool official reaction?
- killing the traditional Islam adepts by Vahhabists, who and when was arrested?
- hundreds of Vahhabi "volunteers" leaving Russia for joining Syrian "rebels", where is Your control?
- Vahhabi leaders' open appeals in the mosques of Moscow(!) "to exterminate infidels", where is Your reaction?
- muslims forcing Russians to leave their homes in southern regions of Russia, where is Your protection?
Urgent and severe mesures are needed: resignation of FSB[Federal Security Service] chief, arrests of Vahhabi leaders, full ban of Vahhabism, closure of all Vahhabi cells in Russia...Modern Vahhabists are merciless Terrorists. Vahhabism is the Plague. Plague is to be exterminated or it will exterminate the "infidels".
Vahhabism and all its "branches", it is the Omen, Omen for all, not for Russia only.
